Hawk Harrelson is the biggest homer announcer on the planet, and that makes him pretty unlikable to listen to most of the time. But sometimes he goes so far over the top that it’s hard not to enjoy it. Especially when he drops words that might be offensive to some.
Adam Dunn crushed a walk-off 2-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning on Friday to give the White Sox a 6-5 win over the Yankees. Harrelson went so crazy in the celebration that he blurted out a “hell yes!” while losing his mind. It was great.
And, boy, did David Robertson miss his spot badly on that pitch or what? Brian McCann set up way outside for the pitch, and Robertson threw a 92-mph fastball that had cutter-like movement and came back towards the plate. That definitely was not what he was trying to do.
